Dashboard 2-1


Vendor Submitted Services:

Your suppliers can submit the services they've completed, including on-contract, planned, and fully ad-hoc services. These are sent for review and approval internally. Field tickets, a key capability for several industries, are made simple and seamless.

Rate Compliance:

Automatically enforces service rates, helping maintain budget and spend control.

Visual Progress Tracking:

Features progress bars for tracking contract and purchase order limits against actual expenditures, enhancing budget management.

Mobile Approvals:

Service entry sheets can be approved on-the-go by supervisors via mobile, centralizing SAP data for convenient access.

Key Advantages:

Our solution integrates directly within SAP, providing real-time data access without needing external data integration. This is a significant benefit over competitors, offering a unified view within the SAP ecosystem.

Addresses common industry challenges, such as on-the-fly services accounting allocations for POs with unknown account assignments and resources that are not named —something not available in SAP Ariba or SAP Fieldglass.

Our certified add-on for SAP fills a gap in the Ariba system, providing a field ticket solution already in use by energy companies, demonstrating a proven track record of addressing specific industry needs.



The "Service Accruals Management" (SAM) Application streamlines month-end accruals for unbilled vendor time and ensures precise cost allocation between Capital Spend and Operating Expense, aiming for execution by Day 1 of month-end close.

Accrual Estimation: Estimate service accrual amounts based on historical and current month Badge data and Service Entry sheet data per Cost object for selected Company code, Plant, and Month.

Vendor-level Drill-down: Allow users to delve into vendor-level accrual estimates for each cost object, facilitating detailed analysis.

SOW and Contractor-level Drill-down: Enable users to explore Statement of Work (SOW) and Contractor-level accrual estimates for each Vendor and Cost object, enhancing granularity in tracking expenses.

How Do I Communicate That I Have a New Supplier Portal?


Invoice Simulation:
Allows vendors to generate invoice simulations using the perfect calculation of the PO amounts, taxes, freight, customs, and total based on the receipts of goods and services received. The perfect invoice can then be generated by your supplier and submitted in a few clicks. This moves from hope as a strategy to get the invoices right, to helping your suppliers get their invoices perfectly correct the first time.  

Invoice Automation:
Automation from emails - our AI powered invoice automation tool is so powerful it can easily handle 5000+ line invoices emailed in with multiple file types and even multiple files making up the invoice + supporting details. These are extracted automatically reviewed for duplicates, validations, then final evaluation and posting the into SAP.

Precise Calculations:
Unlike other procure-to-pay solutions, our tool accurately includes all details, such as taxes, to ensure invoices match down to the penny.

3-Way Matching:
Assist your supplier in accurately generating a three-way match by simulating the invoice process, ensuring any discrepancies such as missing goods receipts, service entry sheets, or field ticket approvals are identified and addressed promptly.

Cross-SAP invoice transparency:
Provides both vendors and buyers with visibility into invoice status and payment remittance details. Vendors can easily see when they will be paid, reducing the need to contact the buying organization for updates. Provides a central view across S/4, Ariba, Fieldglass, and even the intermediate processing steps within VIM.

Vendor Case Management: If someone has an issue with an invoice, this usually gets emailed and routed manually. This feature leverages a wizard to determine what is the category of a user's problem, prompting them to submit any additional details they would need to provide before the issue is escalated, before a ticket is automatically generated. Users could then view a dashboard of tickets that are currently active on and can be collaborated on.


Procurement Analytics

Cutting-Edge Design:

Leverages SAP's Next-Generation User Experience to offer interactive and prebuilt graphs, making complex data easy to understand.

Comprehensive Coverage:

Integrates information across SAP's entire procurement suite, including Ariba, Fieldglass, S/4HANA, and IBP, for a holistic view of procurement activities. The unified data-model creates a single source of truth across the spend portfolio with just one source for all.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does Procurement Gateway integrate with SAP ERP?

The solution doesn’t integrate with SAP, it directly installs within the SAP ECC or S/4 system, allowing for real-time processing of all transactions with only one master record of the PO, invoice, etc. within the SAP system.

This integration streamlines workflows and reduces manual entry errors, reusing the existing configuration in your SAP system (tolerances, vendors, PDFs, etc). Technically, the add-on to the ERP system is built and certified the way SAP builds their own products so it is clean core compliant and upgradable (including upgrading from ECC to S/4 with the add-on installed). 

What about the handling of non-PO invoices? The system accommodates non-PO invoices, making it easier for clients to manage indirect expenses and ensuring comprehensive invoice processing. Suppliers can submit an invoice in the gateway or email it. The invoice automation for emailed invoices is AI powered and extremely effective in extracting and automating the processing of invoices.  
Are there any costs for vendors? Vendors do not incur direct costs for using the gateway. This aspect is crucial for overcoming barriers to vendor adoption and should be highlighted when discussing the solution with potential clients. 
What support is available for vendor onboarding? Extensive training materials and technical support are provided to facilitate vendor onboarding. This ensures a smooth transition for vendors to the gateway and enhances vendor satisfaction. 
Can the solution handle payment terms and start the payment clock? Yes, it references SAP to track payment terms and initiate the payment process based on the invoice submission, aiding in efficient cash flow management. 
How are procurement gateway upgrades handled? How does that work with SAP upgrades? ConvergentIS ensures the solution upgrades from ECC 6 enhancement pack 7 and up including converting/upgrading from ECC to S/4 and continues to work as designed. The product installs in SAP just like an add-on provided by SAP so the upgrade process is simple. To ensure a smooth upgrade our team provides the upgrade compatibility confirmation so that the team running the upgrade can upgrade with it in place. It’s best to collaborate in advance of an upgrade to ensure the relevant compatibility files are on-hand for your upgrade. 
How do PO confirmations work? The PO header and line-item details are visible for the vendor. The vendor can accept, reject, or request changes (dates, quantities, split delivery, and price) with a simple workflow with comments back and forth between the buyer and the vendor. With PO confirmations in real-time, the SAP MRP engine has immediate visibility to the status of confirmations, agreed changes, and rejections from vendors.  
Can the gateway handle service entry sheets or field tickets and related approvals? Yes, the gateway can manage service entry sheets, “LEMS” (labour, equipment and materials), field tickets, including the submission and approval process. This functionality allows for seamless entry of service-based transactions into SAP, ensuring accurate tracking and approval of services rendered. We support the use of outline agreements, service PO lines, on & off contract spend, and ad-hoc submitted services and these can be submitted on mobile. Each service is highlighted as either on/off contract rates and relative to the remaining value of a framework order or PO when presented on mobile for approval. Lean services in S/4 are planned on the roadmap for compatibility.
